These occasions offer inspiring subjects and speakers to help plant and nourish the seeds of ideas for pioneering ministry. They happen occasionally and are open to mainly Greenhouse teams, but other Church of England pioneers may be invited from time to time.
There are no forthcoming Inspire events at the moment.
These events offer Greenhouse teams some time out for self-care. They cover a range of wellbeing issues and allow time for Biblical reflection, prayer, and the space to acknowledge that pioneering ministry can sometimes be a tough gig. Pause events happen occasionally and are open to mainly Greenhouse teams.
There are no upcoming Pause events at the moment.
These events provide an introduction to what Greenhouse is all about. They’re designed for those who have signed up to be part of the Greenhouse adventure already, but if you’re curious and wondering whether Greenhouse might be for you, contact us to enquire about sitting in and listening to the presentation.
The next Invitation event date will be for those teams which are part of Cohort C and will take place on November 23rd 7.30pm-9.00pm.
These evenings launch a group of brand new Greenhouses, (we get very excited about that!). More detail is given to help committed teams make a start and to become more familiar with the Greenhouse approach.
The next Launch events is:
January 13th 7.30pm-9.00pm for the group of Greenhouses in Cohort C.
The Greenhouse approach to growing fresh expressions of church is distinctive. It is based on teamwork, but specifically, drawing those teams together regularly in ways that help them to be creative, supportive to each other, and to solve problems collaboratively. Facilitating those great conversations requires some basic training from the national Greenhouse team. These events are for committed Greenhouse facilitators only.
The next facilitators’ training event dates are for Cohort C as follows:-
- Session One: November 1st 10.30am-12.30pm
This session will introduce you to Greenhouse, the learning style used, the 'Godsend' material and will give you information on the National Launch and Invite events.
- Session Two: November 16th 10am-3pm
This session will go through the practicalities of running your Greenhouse and let you experience what a gathering is like.
At Greenhouse we’re big believers in the “wisdom being in the room” so we gather our diocesan enablers together to learn from each other as they share their insights. These events are for committed Greenhouse enablers only.
The upcoming Enablers' meetings are:-
Friday, November 19th 10am-12.30pm.
